try shoebuy.com?
i did a MO from there before. and the the classic 6" cost less than $300.

Thanks for the info. Just checked getting from shoebuy.com would cost me around $390+-.
Anyone knows whats the cost like in Japan or HK? Got sis going Japan & a cousin going HK so thought of getting either of them to buy for me if its cheaper.

In Japan, the list prices for US-made shoes are astronomical. Unless you happen to be able to find some old stock sold at 30% discount or more, I don't think it is worth the while. I've yet to find them in the shops for below 25,000yen or around SGD370, but maybe I haven't looked hard enough. The question is, you just want to save around $50 and expect your sis, who is on holiday, to waste her time going around searching for them and then having to add to her luggage burden (in both volume and weight) if there really is the model and size you want?

May be alittle cheaper in Hong Kong but I rarely see them.

Are you familiar with their sizing? If not, you should try them out locally before you buy. AFAIK, Suntec is fixed pricing but service is not bad. Peninsula, I think Feder sports sells them, with a little lee-way for bargaining but like most places, models and sizes very limited.

If you are familiar with your sizing, and assuming the company doesn't send you a damaged pair, online is still cheapest and most convenient.

they have a 20% discount code flying around. used it and you will save a bundle =)
I did a MO and the classic 6" heritage round cost like $290 bucks (with shipping)
hope this helps!

and i agree with what cowcalulator said. try it at local store. online still the cheapest and shoes are not exactly very light to bring back. =)

first pair has a more clean and finished look..
second pair has a more rugged and used look..

in a dilemma now~ heading down to suntec to get one later. shall see which one best suits me then..

had my eyes on the 1907 budden after reading this thread, i got my eyes stuck to the 875 as well!

and after browsing more, i found another nice pair, 8138.

in my opinion skinny jeans dont go with boots. you'll just look funny to be honest.

got this instead, my feet couldnt fit the rest well. T_T. A little flat footed. haha.

any red wing gurus here can share a few pointers on how to break into the boot?

wore it for around 5 hours, the part above my ankle hurts, as well as my toes (due to the bending of the front part of the shoe constantly hitting my toes as i walk).

any methods to reduce the pain as the boot gets broken in?

wear it for two to three hours max for the first few time. There are methods to hasten it but it is best to take weeks to break into it. Time is your best friend.
